Haiti Relief

So, I thought a great way to help the people of Haiti would be to adopt an orphan or two. Husband did not approve. He said that there is a big difference between adopting a child and texting a $10 donation. Whatever. I think we should all adopt Haitian babies!

Seriously, though, these poor people were hit by a second earthquake today. Death tolls are reportedly up to 200,000. They need our help. These are some great ways to give a little or a lot:

-Text ‘Haiti’ to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross. It will be charged to your cell phone bill. For larger donations to the Red Cross, visit www.redcross.org.

-Seton Institute. This is a Catholic charity that takes financial donations as well as In-Kind gifts of medical supplies. So, all you medical sales reps should consider this one and alert your employers. Visit http://www.setoninstitute.org/ for more info.

-My aunt sells the Wonderful Wonderbar. It’s an awesome facial cleanser. For every purchase you make, they’re donating to Doctors Without Borders. Visit http://www.wonderfulwonderbar.com/ or email her at Lissa@wonderfulwonderbar.com.

So, adopt a baby, send a text, clean your face … whatever you want, do your part to help the people of Haiti.
